    email confirmation shows full price but credit card was charged only the deposit amount ($350 or $400 depending on which one)

    i’m really curious to see how long it’ll take for them to sell out, wish i could see the current sales trends!

    Hmmm maybe I will settle for Threezeros Premium instead.

    Deluxe is close to $3000 or probably even over that after all the conversion fees. That's not even counting any tax or shipping fee that they might slap when this start shipping. Hard to justify it at that price range but I don't know. I'll think about it for a bit before deciding.

    from the current conversion, seems like USD is 95% of HKD so the email’s total including shipping and subtracting the preorder discount is a little over $2700 for the deluxe. if this is executed without any hiccups and ends up being sold out, i wouldn’t want to think about the aftermarket prices.

    Just got an update email, the deposit was only $350, the extra $48 or so (HKD 361), was a default charge on shipping (it was never meant to be charged).

    They gave me the option to have a refund or just deduct it from my balance, so I did the latter (may as well start paying up for this beast).

    Well, I decided to order one of these come hell or high water. I went for the standard version because I neither need nor particularly want the bonus accessories that the deluxe version comes with and any way to make this monster less expensive is more than welcome.

    I did deluxe just because I hate not having all the accessories, even if I’m using them. I haven’t been this excited about any collectible in a long time. Just hope the quality is high and that the line continues. At these prices, I hope the other non Optimus/non Megatron characters sell well.

    I don’t even want to raise this idea, but - every major mold of Optimus Prime has had a black, Nemesis repaint (white repaints are usually not guaranteed, black ones usually are) - do we think there is going to be a Nemesis Prime? Threezero made a DLX one.

    The repaint could be limited to just 250, deluxe format (no standard), since the majority of the money likely went to development, it would still be cost-effective?

    As for me, this is too expensive for my blood, 2200 dollars is almost 10K ringgit at my country

    i opted for a refund, i don’t want my money tied up more than i have to.

    seems like they’re both still available - really curious to know how many they’ve sold so far. if both sets have their own serial number range, i wonder if that implies there’ll never be a re-release, except if it’s something like a different color scheme.

    I really doubt there will be a direct rerelease; however, I could totally see an Earth Mode OP (this is, after all, Cybertronian Prime) with mostly the same tooling (we know that some parts are interchangeable, including the shoulder pads and forearms, which are the biggest differences between the two forms of Optimus seen in the film).

    I debated and debated, and I just can't. I have to draw the line somewhere, I don't even think I could ask the wife. That's all the money I need to get my high school Camaro running again, it's every arcade conversion I've wanted, that Springfield M1A I've eyeballed 15 years, it's 5 weekends at the track and a set of new track tires. Like the XM Optimus Statue, it'll have to be a giant hole in my Optimus collection...

    that’s true, but with how little difference there is between the two, other companies are including swappable pieces for both modes, and i’m a little disappointed yolopark isn’t doing the same. they have swappable clear armor for the deluxe set, so i don’t see why they wouldn’t be able to swap out the earth parts in a similar fashion.

    if they were to have another run with these subtle changes, the exclusivity of the unique serial numbers won’t be as significant as they should be.

    And this is just for the standard right. Deluxe costs about myr11k something.

    The price point set is not cheap but the engineering on the IIES is just amazing. Really glad that someone finally stood up to come out something like this. I always see these similar engineering on Gundam model kit but YOLOPARK just bring it to next level cos Gundam PG not even come close to what YOLOPARK is bringing.

    To be fair, the price may seem very expensive but if one to 3D print on this size it won\'t be cheap and probably will be even more expensive. If you ever have commission someone to 3D print, you will probably know what I mean.
